Week in Review – I am not getting sick!
As usually happens when I rant about something,
I soon do the same thing that I was complaining about.
Today, I edged off the road and into the gravel
– twice –
while fiddling around with this or that,
when I should have been concentrating on driving.
I had such a frustrating day at work!
Some days are simply like that, I guess,
but I just couldn’t figure out why
everything was rubbing me the wrong way today.
I was supposed to work at the office today, but I didn’t.
I was so tired and worn out, and that was when I had just woken up.
I took a nap today for the first time in forever,
and woke up feeling the exact same way.
Great…two bad mornings on the same day.
I did make it to work today, but I was feeling ill the whole way.
I put in two hours before going home sick.
Another nap – wow!
And I still managed to sleep 12 hours Wednesday night.
I am not getting sick again!
We had our’s last Saturday, so today was like a regular work day for me.
Except I was paid time and a half to be there.
It was freezing cold at my house tonight!
I received a much-needed fuel delivery on Wednesday,
but I’d gotten so used to the low temperature (to conserve propane)
that I forgot to turn the heat up when I got home
and didn’t even notice until almost bedtime.
I went to a baby shower today for my friend’s sister,
who is a great person, and who I think will be a wonderful mother.
She’s 37, which many people consider to be a late start to motherhood.
But to me, she will always be the little sister,
and I kept having the thought, “but you’re just a youngster yourself!”
(This kind of thinking is clearly one of the 7 signs of aging.
The other signs are…
Hmm…I can’t remember.)

Am I still sick because I’m single? by me (in which I wonder if I was “allowing myself to wallow in sickness”)
